Despite what people on the left will tell you, attacking American Jews over the events happening in Israel, is not justice for Palestine. Attacking Jews for the fact that they are Jewish is not a protest against Israel; likewise, calling for the abolition of the state of Israel is not a solution to the problem.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), has noticed an alarming spike in the number of violent acts committed towards Jews living in the United States. This much is evident when we look at the events of last week, where Jews were physically attacked outside their places of worship, and where they had gathered to dine.
These attacks were carried out by pro-Palestinian protesters who are driven by their hate for Jews rather than their desire for peace in the Middle East.
"Oftentimes in the past where there would be a conflagration in Middle East, there might be an uptick in anti-Semitism here," CEO of the Anti-Defamation League says.
"But the last two weeks, it has been more drastic and frankly, more dangerous." pic.twitter.com/BXf6eXzpbH

Will the Biden Administration Act?
It is unlikely. The administration although offers a facade of support for Israel, clearly has reservations about openly supporting the Jewish state. It’s obvious now that there is a divide in the Democrat Party over Israel.
The young progressive House representatives, AOC, Omar, and company are vocal in their disapproval of Israel. In most cases, it goes beyond logic too; calls for “fairness” in the conflict ignore that should every fight be equal, WW2 would still be raging on with no victory in sight.
New York police were conducting a hate crimes investigation Friday after several people shouting anti-Semitic slurs attacked a Jewish man while pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian protesters demonstrated in Times Square. https://t.co/OpNWW1Zm49

Is Israel that bad?
No, it’s really not. It’s the only functional western democracy in the Middle East. It’s actually quite liberal too; gay rights and woman rights are no issue in the Jewish state. The City of Tel Aviv is known for its LGBTQ-friendly nightclubs, and women serve equally with men in the Israeli military.
The anti-Semitic attacks we have seen in America over the past few weeks are appalling. We must condemn all forms of anti-Semitism and stand with our friends in the Jewish community.

Is Israel an Apartheid state? No, it is defiantly not. Israel is home to about 1.3 million Palestinian Arabs who enjoy voting rights and suffer zero movement restrictions.
In contrast, in the Palestinian lands, Gaza and the West Bank, there are no rights granted to Jews. In fact, it would be a death sentence for any Jew who would dare to enter Gaza. Hamas, the militant organization there has the motto: death to the Jews, death to America.
A Two-State Solution Will Only Work When Palestinians Acknowledge Israel’s Right to Exist
It should be clear by now. Israel has no problem with Palestine’s right to exist; in fact, in almost every resolution drafted for a two-state solution, Israel expressed its willingness to work for peace. Meanwhile, the Palestinian authority almost exclusively refuses to accept an independent Jewish state.
Hamas has categorically said that every Jew should be driven into the sea and killed. Under that promise, there will never be peace or prosperity between the two states until the terrorist organizations put their guns and rockets down.
